An enormously complex and beautifully crafted film
15 February 2017 | by rosa-lieSee all my reviews

I just saw this movie at the Berlinale 2017 and it literally blew my mind. It's been a long time since I saw such a complex and multi-layered story interwoven with strong and beautiful images and sound. The dialogues are crisp but meaningful, the acting of the two main characters highly convincing and beautiful. The story follows a married couple in a crisis. He is having an affair, which leaves her feeling unloved and full of doubts. With a trip to the mountains they want to try to find back their lost link and clear up uncertainties but, when they unexpectedly hit a sheep on the road, things turn into mysterious events which eventually, all are representing parts of perception and reality. Based on the script of passed-away German writer and director Jörg Kalt, Greg Zgilinsky created a masterpiece of visual beauty and intense emotions. His intuitive way to approach the profound script and to bring together all the scenes with an editing that totally makes sense and adds to the material, he found a way to visualize different layers of characters and realities. A must-see on all levels!
